Oxford Street West Environmental Assessment


The City of London has initiated a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA) study for improvements to Oxford Street West, from Westdel Bourne to Sanatorium Road.

This study builds on the City’s 2030 Transportation Master Plan and Cycling Master Plan to develop and review options to widen Oxford Street West from two to four lanes, improve intersection operations including consideration of roundabouts, and improve pedestrian and cycling facilities through the corridor. The potential need to widen the Thames River Bridge will also be reviewed. 

Current status

The study began in December 2022. The first Public Information Centre took place in April 2023. This public meeting was an opportunity for residents to learn about the study, to ask questions, and share comments with the project team. 

The second Public Information Centre (PIC #2) is being held on December 6, 2023, to present design alternatives for the road cross section, intersections, and the Thames River Bridge, the evaluation of design alternatives, the preliminary preferred plan, and next steps in the study.

A drop-in style open house will be held where residents can discuss the study with members of the project team. The PIC display materials and a recording of the presentation is posted below and also available on the project's Get Involved webpage.
